"The Cost of Not Spending"
Dead trees left standing have a high potential to fail and the cost for removal of the dead tree can be directly related to the length of time the tree stands in that condition.
If a homeowner waits too long to contract a tree care company to remove a dead tree, their city or village may impose fines. Letters are sent to residents notifying them they are not in compliance with a city ordinance. If the deadline to remove the tree is missed, the homeowner can be responsible for significant fines.
Also, the level of risk for field crew, as well as the surrounding area, increases the longer the dead tree is left standing.
